Lyrics 

You were the girl that changed my world

You were the girl for me

You lit the fuse, I stand accused

You were the first for me

But you turned me out baby (you dropped a bomb on me)

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

But you turned me on baby (you dropped a bomb on me)

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

You were my thrills, you were my pills

You dropped a bomb on me

You turn me out, you turn me on

You turned me loose then you turned me wrong

You dropped a bomb on me

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

But you turned me out baby (you dropped a bomb on me)

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

Just like Adam and Eve

Said you’d set me free

You took me to the sky, I’d never been so high

You were my pills, you were my thrills

You were my hope baby, you were my smoke

You dropped a bomb on me, hey baby (you dropped a bomb on me)

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

But you turned me out, baby (you dropped a bomb on me)

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

But you turned me on, baby (you dropped a bomb on me)

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

You dropped a bomb on me, baby (you dropped a bomb on me)

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

We were in motion, felt like lotion

You were the girl for me

You were the first explosion turned out to be corrosion

You were the first for me

But you turned me out, baby (you dropped a bomb on me)

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me (whoa, oh, oh, baby)

You dropped a bomb on me

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

I won’t forget what you done to me, baby (you dropped a bomb on me)

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

You dropped a bomb on me

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

I, I-I, I-I-I won’t forget it

I, I-I, I-I-I won’t forget it

You dropped a bomb on me

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

You dropped a bomb on me

Baby, you dropped a bomb on me

I, I-I, I-I-I won’t forget it

I, I-I, I-I-I won’t forget it

You turned me out, you turned me on

And then you dropped me to the ground

You dropped a bomb on me

You turned me out, you turned me on

And then you dropped me to the ground

You dropped a bomb on me

You turned me out, then you turned me on

You dropped a bomb on me

You turned me out, then you turned me on

You dropped a bomb on me

You turned me out, then you turned me on (I, I-I)

You dropped a bomb on me (I-I-I won’t forget it)

You turned me out, then you turned me on (I, I-I)

You dropped a bomb on me (I-I-I won’t forget it)

You turned me out, then you turned me on (baby, you dropped a bomb on me, babe)

You dropped a bomb on me (then you turned me on)

You turned me out, then you turned me on (turned me on, babe)

You dropped a bomb on me (then you turned me on, babe)

You turned me out, then you turned me on

You dropped a bomb on me (then you turned me on, babe)

You turned me out, then you turned me on, baby

You dropped a bomb on me
